OUR TOP SKINCARE PICKS FOR MEN
Your skin is one of the hardest working organs of your body, and one of the first indicators of health. Men were once a neglected segment in the skincare industry, but that’s quickly changing. Most skin products geared towards men used to be unnecessarily harsh, from stinging alcohol aftershaves to drying soaps. And unless they work in entertainment, most men don’t spend a lot of time thinking about maintaining their skin.
In fact, the last time I remember a man depicted as taking conscious care of his skin, I was watching American Psycho’s iconic morning routine scene. Say what you want about Patrick Bateman, but at least the man knew his skincare.
You don’t need to have as many products as Christian Bale’s pathologically perfectionist Bateman, though. Simply adding a couple more steps into your morning and night routine can make your skin look smoother, and boost your overall confidence.
The Soorat has a highly curated selection of unisex skincare products to choose from. Here are some of our top picks to help you soothe your skin post-shave, combat acne, and fight signs of aging.
First of all, ditch the fragranced soaps and grab a gentle foaming cleanser instead. This velvety formula by SK-II contains Willow bark extract and deeply cleanses dirt and oils without stripping the skin of all moisture.
Get a sting-free alternative to alcohol-based aftershave, with this soothing treatment lotion by Origins. Formulated to be pH balanced with your skin, this toning lotion contains Reishi mushroom and Sea Buckthorn to calm irritation and redness.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Face Gel
Gel creams are great for oily skin types, and this formula by Neutrogena will keep your skin moisturized without any pore-clogging ingredients. It contains hyaluronic acid, which your skin needs to feel supple and hydrated.
Don’t skip this step before your morning commute! Constant exposure to sunlight is responsible for causing premature wrinkling and damage to your skin. All the expensive skincare in the world goes to waste without good sun protection. This broad-spectrum formula by Dr. Jart offers strong defense while also hydrating.
After washing off the grime of the day, it’s time to unwind. After all, skincare isn’t just about looking better, it’s also a great way to relax and pamper yourself. So kick your feet up and soak in this bamboo sheet mask with cooling cucumber extract.
Whether in hot summer or blistering winter, lip protection is a must. After a long day of exposure to the city’s pollutants, they can get cracked and painful. Carry this Neutrogena Norwegian Formula lip balm for nourishment and protection on the go.
